Toyota Prado Is the New Thief Magnet. Shares Many Parts With Hiace

Buda, every car has a DESIGNED maximum horsepower and torque against rpm, and maximum load it can carry.

Now you are losing it. How do you define power to weight ratio? And what is its significance as a locomotive measurement?

It is a measure of Weight of the Engine to its output power.


This is a horsepower/torque tuning curve of a Toyota Yaris GR 1.6 261hk. This is what I am talking about. You can see how the car’s efficiency has increased with tuning. Nobody cares about the weight. That is taken care of by materials science.

what is its significance?

Hii ni uongo.Most kenyans wanaown toyotas so probability na cases za kuiba ziko very high.Recently mazda cx5 nissan notes pia zinaibiwa sana

This is a wrong argument. At a certain RPM, by increasing torque, you reduce horsepower. The car’s efficiency hasn’t changed. You are just repurposing power. Yes weight does affect efficiency. The heavier the engine is, the less effective it will be.

The engine will be less effective in doing what? What do you measure as effective? As per your logic, the earthmovers, (bulldozer, excavators, et. al) are effective because of light engines?

[Load and Torque curves have to be matched for optimal performance be it torque for Speed such as in motorcycles or torque for towing such as in trailers

How do you match the load and torque? By reducing the weight of the IC engine?

Prado/Fortuner/HiLux/Hiace share parts. Generally Toyota is very good at parts sharing esp small things like switches, electric motors, regulators etc. Economies of scale (unlike Honda!).
Juzi nimeona 2020 vits & probox has the same window/side mirror buttons as a corolla from 2003 ! only change is where they are mounted on the dashboard.
